Lab/department/ Institute:

A postdoctoral position is available in the lab of Dr. Annie Beuve in the Department of Pharmacology, Physiology and Neuroscience at New Jersey Medical School- Rutgers. We are a multidisciplinary lab that studies nitric oxide (NO) signaling and its receptor the soluble Guanylyl Cyclase (sGC), which produces the second messenger cGMP. We explore both aspects of NO signaling, e.g. the NO-sGC-cGMP pathway and S-nitrosation using cell and molecular biology, biochemistry and physiological approaches (more information is available on our website: https://beuvelab.org).  The lab has multiple collaborations on the campus with the Center for Advanced Proteomics Research, the Office of Advanced Research Computing and the Cardiovascular Institute. 

The scientific environment of Rutgers-New Jersey Medical School is excellent with access to multiple core facilities (imaging with Zeiss LSM 510 confocal microscope, nucleic acid core, flow cytometry etc.), in addition to mouse echocardiography equipment and state-of-the-art genome-editing transgenic facility. The department is collegial and highly interactive with a strong interest in nitric oxide and calcium signaling in the nervous and cardiovascular system (http://njms.rutgers.edu/departments/pharmacology/).

Rutgers, the State University of NJ is an equal opportunity and affirmative action employer. New Jersey Medical School is on the Newark campus, 25 min from Manhattan.

POSITION: We are hiring as soon as possible a postdoc with a recent PhD to study vascular diseases in mouse models of NO signaling disruption. The successful candidate will lead a project to integrate the molecular mechanisms of NO signaling through both cGMP and S-nitrosation in the cardiovascular system of knock-in and knock-out mouse models. The postdoctoral fellow will be responsible for carrying out the project, contributing to the experimental design, presenting at national/international conferences, and writing manuscripts. The PI will closely work with the successful candidate who will be encouraged to apply for independent postdoctoral fellowship grants. Highest consideration will be given to applicants with expertise in vascular physiology and NO signaling. Our lab is supported by NIH and AHA. This particular position is funded by NIGMS. The research project is expected to generate high impact publications and provide the successful candidate with an excellent opportunity for future career development.

MINIMUM QUALIFICATIONS: candidate should have a recent PhD or MD/PhD degree in physiology or related biomedical disciplines. First-authored publication(s) in peer-reviewed English-language internationally recognized journals is required. The candidate must have experience in cardiovascular studies in mice and handling of rodent colonies.

Preferred qualifications: Basic molecular/cellular biology skills. Experience with primary cell culture and fluorescent microscopy is a plus.

Application: Please email a letter of interest, CV and the names and contacts of three references to Dr. Annie Beuve, Professor at beuveav@njms.rutgers.edu.
